Terroir: Located in the heart of Carneros on a west-facing slope lies Las Brisas Vineyard (“the Breezes” in Spanish), the preeminent vineyard of Vermentino in the U.S. Daily morning fog is followed by cooling breezes from the San Pablo Bay. It’s owned by the esteemed Mohoney family, early pioneers and dedicated growers of Vermentino in California.

Vinification: Fruit harvested by hand at night/first light on October 7th. Whole cluster direct to press. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Fermented in neutral 500L puncheons (43%), concrete egg (31%) and stainless steel (26%) and aged for 5 months.

Tasting notes: The 2023 Las Brisas Vineyard Vermentino boasts a lively yellow color with subtle green highlights. Fragrant notes of citrus blossom and lemongrass mingle with flavors of feijoa, grapefruit peel, and a hint of sea salt on the palate. Its crisp acidity perfectly balances the intricate layers of saline complexity typical of this vineyard's cool climate. The finish is quenching, refreshing, and vibrant.
